In so doing, they inherited a long tradition of wine-growing, which they nurtured in the spirit of a symbiosis of monastery, winery and estate that is still very much in evidence today. The result, in the 21st century, is a range of top-quality wines MURI-GRIES like the Abtei Muri line, which has been produced selected grapes the very best sites since 1989.
